Technology Helps Democracy In Brazil
Electronic ballot boxes make the voting process easier and faster.
The Brazilian elections results rank among the fastest to be announced in the world. Two weeks ago, merely 7 hours after the ballots were closed, 100% of the states had declared their winners – or runoff candidates, where applicable.
While there’s still some debate over the security of a completely electronic voting process, it’s undeniable that for a country like Brazil, where there are more than 130 million voters (and voting is mandatory), no other method could be so effective.
